Get a CT Scan of brain done. Take naproxen.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query. I understand the dismal situation that you are in. The cause of the headache needs to be identified. It could be due to migraine or tension headache. It could also be due to intracranial causes like tumors. The cause needs to be investigated. A CT Scan of the brain would provide valuable clues in this regard. Thereafter you can try taking Aleve (naproxen) 500 mg one or two tablets together when needed (preferably in full stomach). Hopefully that would help.

The tinnitus could be due to sensorineural degenerative changes that often occurs due to advancement in age. Taking vestibulocochlear stabilizing agents like cinnarizine or betahistine (prescription meds) should help.

I recently had a TIA, and for months I have had a headache. I had a radio frequency about 2 /1/2 months ago and it helped a bit with my headache but it came back and still not gone. Mostly across forehead and behind eyes and there is a pressure and then other times it comes from my neck and up the back of my head and goes into my shoulders. On a pain scale it ranges from a 3-4 to an 8. Any idea s? what should I do my docs says if it is bad again go to the ER. But serouisly what are they going to do. Tell me to check back with my family doctor? Linda

I have been having headaches frequently, usually on the right side or on top of my head towards the back. Along with headaches I have spells where I feel dizzy/woozy. And lots of tension/pain in my neck. Is it just tension or could be it be something more serious.
